IoT means:  Internet of Things – ( Internet delle Cose )

The idea behind the IoT is to make your life easier by giving us access via SmartPhone, Tablet or PC, to the objects that surround us such as Lights, Appliances, Air Conditioning, but also Cars, Boats, Campers, etc.
To do this the first thing that is necessary is that all these objects have their own IP address (see IPv6) that allows us to reach them even when we are away from home.
Imagine what mean to have access to their  Lights, Appliances, Air Conditioning, etc, from remote.
Wherever we are we can control them.

L’idea che c’è dietro l’IoT è di semplificare la vita dandoci l’accesso via SmartPhone, Tablet o PC agli oggetti che ci circondano quali Luci, Elettrodomestici, Climatizzazione, ma anche Auto, Barche, Camper, ecc.
Per fare questo la prima cosa che serve è che tutti questi oggetti abbiano un loro indirizzo IP (vedi IPv6) che ci permetta di raggiungerli anche quando siamo fuori casa.
Immaginate cosa può voler dire avere l’accesso al proprio camper o alle luci di casa o al nostro climatizzatore da remoto. Ovunque ci troviamo li possiamo controllare ma anche comandare.


Up to now there are direct support for a loot of the IoT platforms, below there is the list.

  • FP-CLD-AWS1 – IoT node to the Amazon AWS IoT platform
  • FP-CLD-AZURE1 – IoT node to the Microsoft Azure IoT platform
  • FP-CLD-WATSON1 – IoT node to the IBM Watson IoT platform
  • FP-CLD-BLUEMIX1 – IoT node to the IBM Bluemix platform (NRND)
    • Here there is a doc, example and tutorial concerning IBM Bluemix (see Hands-On-n2)

Some interesting applications are listed below.
